have you test unifi?
at my home for the main router I use an RB750GL and 2 unifi AP.
once on a hackmeeting I mounted 5 RB750GL, one was the master, an then
4 communicates with that using BGP routing. Then each port had 1 DHCP
autoritative, so then I could offer connectivity to 253*4*4, 4048
users, simply what I had to do is put AP in cascade. With this could
have 16 different networks with communication with all.
for the internet connection I putted a transparent proxy caching all
the connections, in some cases, with a network with a lot of users I
found that ADSL default router died caused to the big amount of
connections, with a proxy in the middle router continued working :)
you have to take care, that the ADSL routers that put our ISP are a
fucking shit router, sometimes, the best way is to change it and put
some good stuff, as I told, at my home (I have fiber optics), I use a
mikrotik RB750GL, but if you want a good router to could manage lot of
users, I recommend you mikrotik RB450GL, or mikrotik RB1000 Series :)
I wish it could be useful!
